Here's pics of the metal lining shaved, and the inside panel folded. As some of you know, the inside panel is a freaking block and you have to shave it to have it folded in. The reason the paint is chipping is cus the previous owner wheel setup was rubbing + my other wheels were rubbing too. I'll touch it up. The metal panel was hammered in, it kinda looks like it's still sticking out. I'll whip out the primer and paint and touch it all up.



here's the stock body panel



and here's the actual pull





here's a better picture of how much my front pokes..

I put the 5's on but it's running a lot of camber. If I was able to raise my car up some more I'd keep rocking it but my car is max height

cholea if i wanted to do engine and tranny mounts do you know how to do that? do we need to lift the engine up to do it? i wanna put some new bushings in there maybe stiffer

also the redline we put in our trannys dosent seem all that smoother than it was before to me.. i think the mtl that we used is good for cold and warm climate but not the smoothest fluid redline makes. the other type i think its the d4 atf sounds like its a lot smoother and I'm just not getting the butter smooth feeling from the current fluid.

@borinka, yeah you need that new motor. you can find it cheaper at junkyards. there is a second method which involves thoroughly cleaning the motor where the connections are, it could be chances are that it's really dirty and not making complete contact since the motor is still working. although, it is a lot of work involved because i have to put the window back on the track & etc. so i would have to charge you even if this time this doesn't work. but if it does work, it could save you ~200$ bucks.

next project, vinyl wrapping my car.
